Greenkeepers USA was created out of the idea of turning a small, environmental club in China into an international organization dedicated to spreading sustainable practices worldwide. Since its inception in 2014, Greenkeepers USA has built an impactful following in the Bay Area, completing dozens of projects to benefit diverse communities. Follow us on our journey of social responsibility, innovation, and coffee shop meetings as we continue building a green future.
2022-23 CORE MEMBERS
Hey there! I’m Alisha, a senior at Irvington High School, and I’m the core lead for the events/research team. I’m passionate about sustainability, community service, and ethics. I love Greenkeepers because I get to tackle local environmental problems in a collaborative environment. I also love cats, being physically active, and food!

Hi! I’m Sharvi, a junior at Mission San Jose high school, and I’m the core lead for the Social Media and Publicity team. I joined Greenkeepers in my freshman year because I wanted to do more for the world and specifically combat the climate crisis. I’m so excited to continue on with our ventures and projects! I can easily be found playing water polo, listening to music, or making food with my friends :)
Hi there! I’m Angela, a senior at Mission San Jose High School, and I’m one of the core leads for the engineering team. I’m passionate about social initiatives, community service, and environmental research. In my free time, I enjoy brewing coffee, going on nature walks, listening to Taylor Swift, and teaching my dog new tricks!
Hey! I’m Kaylee, a senior at Mission San Jose High School, and I’m one of the core leads for the engineering team. My interests lie in sustainability and how things like computation and technology can be leveraged to address the world’s largest problems. I also enjoy reading, hiking, and visiting local bakeries! Super excited for this year :)
For the 2022-23 season, we have three dedicated project groups: engineering, social media, and events/research. Welcome to the future.
As the impacts of COVID-19 continue to impact our communities, Greenkeepers are working to ameliorate the effects of both the pandemic and climate change, through our "Life for a Life" COVID-19 memorial tree planting that we started in 2020.

The GK engineering team is working to develop an app to encourage sustainable transportation, allowing users to record instances of biking, walking, carpooling, and more. Users will receive rewards, which we're working on applying to real world prizes such as discounts at local participating businesses.
Our events/research team is in charge of collaborating with local middle and high schools to collect old toys, clothes, and other materials that will be donated to charities for those in need. Alongside this, we're working to promote sustainable and humanitarian alternatives to healthily pass on items we're no longer using.
social media campaigns
Our social media team is working on launching monthly campaigns on our social media, with themes for each month! From learning how to have a sustainable holiday to getting involved in environmental justice campaigns, we hope to provide an important and engaging way to become environmentally conscious.
Our engineering team, in collaboration with Hack Club, organized an exceptional hackathon event called HackBackBetter 2023. This two-day event, held at the prestigious Hacker Dojo in Mountain View on April 22nd and 23rd, aimed to introduce middle and high school students to the exciting world of software development. During the event, we had the opportunity to present our organization, Greenkeepers, and shed light on our impactful initiatives. We also talked about how the power of artificial intelligence can play a crucial role in addressing global challenges. Through our presentation, we showcased the ways in which AI can revolutionize the fight against climate change, from optimizing energy usage to developing innovative solutions for sustainable practices.
The clothing swap was an excellent way for all the members of Greenkeepers to bond. It helped the community as people had brought old clothes to exchange with other members/participants. Participants had brought on an average of about 10 clothes, including T-Shirts, pants, shorts, or hoodies. This amazing event had taken place in the old mission park near the benches, the event had taken place for about 4 hours. Other members had also set up a place for tote bag making, and a few members had also hand-made jewelry. Every participant and member had gotten a fresh-baked cookie, which was made by a small non-profit business.
